Opening Feb. 11-The Eagle, Gnomeo and Juliet, Just Go With It, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never

  There are four new and different films opening wide this weekend with a different audience for each movie. This weekend is all about BIEBER fever vs. Adam Sandler with Bieber’s 3D film opening at number one.

  Directed by Kevin Macdonald (The Last King of Scotland), The Eagle is set in Roman-ruled Britain where a young Roman soldier (Channing Tatum) is accompanied by a slave (Jamie Bell) to find a golden emblem that was thought to be lost in order to honor his father’s memory.

  The first Disney animated film of the year is a re-telling of William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet except all the main players are garden ornaments in Gnomeo and Juliet. Voiced by James McAvoy and Emily Blunt, the star-crossed lovers are caught in a war between neighbors where plastic pink flamingos and lawnmower races is an ordinary occurrence.

  The latest Adam Sandler/Jennifer Aniston film is not really original as it is a loose remake of the Goldie Hawn movie Cactus Flower, which was based on a Broadway stage play which in turn was based on a French play. Sandler plays a plastic surgeon who convinces his assistant (Aniston) to pose as his recently-divorced wife to cover up a lie he told his latest and younger girlfriend (Brooklyn Decker).
